    The regime has now committed another blunder and will continue to do so entangled in its own web of deciet and tyranny. The sacking of CJ signals another stage in the battle for democracy in Sri Lanka which will be carried by the ever increasing tide of citizens fed up with this governement. If govt has any idea of uniting this country it is well and truly gone with the impeachment.

    Already we see the cracks appearing when the president was hooted at a funeral in kelaniya. The murderer is still at large and is rumoured to be awarded a diplomatic appointment. Another murderer of the regime is whiling his time in singapore.

    People who have any love for this country should stand up and oppose this blatant power grab by the Raja Paksha.

      Let us look back at the post-independence history of our country. Every Govt. the two major political (UNP and SLFP) parties have always used divisive methods to mislead the majority of the people, win their votes, gain power and then again use divisive and undemocratic methods to hold on to power. So on they have been responsible for the unnecessary conflicts and unwanted shedding of blood, loss of valuable youth life, etc. Such trends have continued in an increasing scale and now it is to destroy the systems of justice which had some of relief to the people to defend their rights and freedom. The politicians who are in the lead do not care what happens to the people or the country but do care only their being in power and abusing if for their self gains. What leader of the UNP has been doing in the impeachment issue is a clear example. He was never clear and straightforward in his stand as he, when he comes to power again, if at all he does, would want to use the same methods what is being done by the present rulers.

    It seems that nobody has noticed the date of the president’s removal letter – 12-01-2012. On what basis he could remove her last year Jan 12?

    How could the parliament take vote for appointing a PSC and then speaker informS the president that impeachment motion was passed?

    How could the president seek constitutional provision to remove CJ when there is a Supreme Court determination that the PSC process is unconstitutional?

    We have produced a world class comedy.

      AP:”How could the parliament take vote for appointing”
      Did you see Basil invite freemasons like Choksy to ratify this procedure (it goes a long way even to India because Indira married Ghandi the Parsi like him the great priest now)? Anyway those are small details to make it look civilized but the real thing is land is totally under the control of AlCIAd. World Bank is owned by US and they would give the meharaka tota the $1billion and make you poorer and slaves in your motherland.

      Baila taale:”EHEMA WENNE MONA RATEDA – LANKAWE APE LANKAWE……..”
      Of yesteryear Desmond says engalante.
      No jokes I am serious What you need now is large quantities of patriotic poo spread at the entries of administrative places and wipe the butt with the sunday leader then both will fall because IC would be more than concerned.You got to think outside the box when the IC trained anti- terror is a terrorist.

    As Sri Lanka has blatantly violated to share the Commonwealth values which include the judicial system which gives great significance to the doctrine of the Rule of Law, will Commonwealth countries participate in the Commonwealth Conference to be held in Sri Lanka this year. Now the Judiciary in Sri Lanka is strangled to death, signalling the erosion of democracy. The illegal dismissal of the CJ is a great abuse of human rights and as such will the UNHCR Chairperson Navi pillai visit Sri Lanka. Canada, UK, USA, UN and UNHCR has expressed concern over this issue. As this is the situation will the Queen as head of the Commonwealth attend this Conference. At the same time, there is also suspicion that the illegal dismissal of the CJ dends the message that either Sharia Laws or the Chinese Communist laws will be introduced in Sri Lanka. China has been a silent watcher while Iranian Minister said that he would like to improve the existing Sri Lankan Judicial system. If this happens then there is danger awaiting for SAARC and also to India. It will not be surprise even Idiot Wimal Weerawansa & Co will become an Attorney-at-Law without sitting the Law Exam. I think it is better to strike out the Sri Lankan membership from the Commonwealth.

      Citizen:”The illegal dismissal of the CJ is a great abuse of human”
      If all those principals are right then the IC would never have gone into Iraq or Libya. We are in a world where the rich never pay takes and get their deposits back with compound interest.
      Locally Amartalingham spawned the Tiger and later when he held the tail it mauled him to death- this was a cartoon in the CDN.
      Meeharaka Weerawansa was backed by the majority to destroy the North East pact and CJ Silva. Its logic now he has grown horns with your blessings and is prepared to stampede the citizen that created him.
      AlCIAd is in full control of homeland.
      As it is today the Prince will visit because the British public want (pressure is very high) to opt out of EU and recreate the commonwealth.

    Madam CJ Shirani Bandaranayake is the only CJ and will remain CJ as long as the Constitution allows. Nobody including President cannot change constitution.

    First President Mahinda Rajapakse should be impeached for robbing Tsunami International Donations.

    Let’s do that first.

    I also feel very sad for the most horrible death Rizana Nafik has to face

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2pQM2EWSLys
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EP2rp98He0E
    My deepest sympathies to her and her family.

    WHILE MANY RIZANAS WORK IN MIDDLE EAST TO SUPPORT THEIR FAMILIES AND OUR YOUTH GOING TO SOUTH KOREA AND BOAT PEOPLE LEAVING SRI LANKA, MARA IS BRINGING DOWN MERCEDES BENZ,BMW’s, ASTON MARTINS,LAMBORGHINIS AND SUV’S TO GIVE TO HIS FAMILY, FRIENDS AND GOVT. GOONS.

    Not even poorest countries in Africa or even Afganistan or Bangladesh send their women to Middle East while our Maha Rajano proudly send them gladly while enjoying their Blood Money.

    First if anybody could explain the meaning of the following Title President received from Kandy Buddhist Preletes…..it’s called

    “Rajawansa Vibushana Dharmadeepa Charkawarthi”
    Also Please watch the following video.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=urektzCHAyQ

    I can also get a bigger honor title If I can give…. Five brand new Mercedes Benz Cars……..10 Acres of Prime Land…….Build a 500 feet tall Buddha statue……give 50 Air tickets to USA or Europe…. and a Mega Dana to 10,000 buddhist monks and preletes.
    But sorry I am not a Fu….ng as…. h….e to be that mad to do these,when our poor children are going to Middle East to make ends meet to feed their families.

    While Maharajano will do anything to show off his Big head, HE DID NOT EVEN BOTHERED TO PAY LAWYER’S FEE TO RELEASE RIZANA NAFIK…..

    By not complying to EU Human Rights issue MARA made Sri Lanka loose over 100,000 jobs and closed 600 factories, mostly located in Free trade zone….and loosing valuable Foreign Exchange also.

    The bigger thief (Mr 10%) Basil Rajapakse Just stole 85 Billion Rupees of poor peoples money with a fake DIVINEGUMA BILL WHILE CJ WHO TRIED HARD TO SAVE IT FOR POOR PEOPLE HAD TO LOOSE HER JOB.

    Basil say he is going to help poor……….while getting down LAMBORGINI’S FOR FUN AND BUILDING RAJAPAKSE HOTELS IN KALPITIYA AND EAST COAST AND OWNING A $4.5 Million Dollar HOUSE IN USA.
    Please look at the following web to see where Basil Rajapakse’s Gam Udava, Divi Neguma money went…..Basil’s US $4.5 million US house…..and US$995,000 Gotabaya Rajapakse’s us house.

    (Please go to ( Ask.com ) and type Gotabaya rajapakse to check his profile and USA house detalis.

    While saying he got down ONE MILLION TOURISTS LAST YEAR……which I calculated in order to achieve that figure there should be 2,600 (12 full flights) per day of tourists should land EVERY DAY 365 DAYS LAST YEAR.
    I went to Katunayake Airport for six days last two weeks and did not even see 30 Tourists landing per flight.
    Can Basil Rajapakse prove how he got down 1 million Tourists last year.He say 30,000 tourists came from China. So where the rest came from…….other than the FLYING SAUCES seen by Hambanthota villege people.

    Please go to following web to see Basil Stealing US$ 104.3 Million Lotus Tower…with 20% Chinese BLACK MONEY Commission

    http://www.trc.gov.lk/events/colombo-lotus-tower-minister-basil-rajapakse-lays-foundation-stone.html

    Also see the following web. as to how Basil steal poor people’s Land in Kalpitiya with Fake Tourist development Projects.

    http://www.tourismconcern.org.uk/sri-lanka-land-grabs.html

    Aslo Please go to….ask.com and type Basil Rajapakse…or anybody in the MARA family and the Govt.Ministers profiles to see their luxury lifestyles.

    MARA,BARA,GOTA,and CHAMA DOING ALL OF THESE WHILE OUR INNOCENT CHILDREN WERE SENT TO MIDDLE EAST TO BRING IN DOLLARS WORKING AS SLAVES IN THOSE COUNTRIES AND NOW BEEN BEHEADED WHTHOUT MARA NOT EVEN BOTHERED TO PAY LAWYER’S FEES…………AND MANY OTHER POOR PEOPLE LIVE ALMOST LIKE VEDDA (Natives) LIVE. Please see the house Rizana’s Parents live….and watch TV on Flood victims homes… and compare them to the Houses that VEDDAS LIVE. Both look same after 60 years of Indipendence.

    Now the latest is all the ancient relics and swords,coins,statues….and I assume in future they could be displayed in China Museum or in a Black smith shop in China.

    Finally I Kindly request to Sri Lankan Lawyers, Expatriate Community and the Foreign Governments to Bring Law Suit against President Rajapakse for STEALING TSUNAMI DONATION MONEY SENT BY INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY.

    Also EU,US and CW should implement a travel and trade ban to President Rajapakse(who is a Tsunami Thief), Govt.Parliament Members and all govt.goons for Fraudulently impeaching our Chief Justice.

    I hope someone will take action against President Rakapakse.

      Mahela, I agree with you 100%. It was heart breaking to see how Rizana’s family is living. Even cattles, pigs and goats live in sheds better than that. While this poor girl was suffering in a Saudi prison for 3(?)years, at least MARA’s regime could have given her family a half decent place to live from the colossal sums of money they waste on show-off functions. This is the reality.

        Weera,
        I still feel so sorry for our innocent children been forced to work as slaves. On many occcassions when I land in the ME Airports I come across many time that SL housemaids are languishing in the Airports for days without having food or sleep, simply because the owner or the agent has not come to pick them. So when they see some Sri Lankans to support them. There was another house maid, after working for over a year, the owner had not paid her…..and she carried only a small plastic bag of clothes. These children go simply to get some better food to eat and earn little money, but end up in the cruel hands with no food and no money….but feel shy to tell outside. They are treated like slaves and made to sleep with the saudi males….who are very violent and act like beasts. I know them how they behave. Soon their women will be homeless and will end up in other countries houses.
        Also I believe how we treated our Tamil brothers and sisters by our Chauvenistic crazy and jealours Sinhala racists is coming back to haunt us.

        Let’s see how it’s going to end.

    Adding to Weera’s comments, one wonders what these various Ministers from the Muslim community have done to improve the housing standards of
    their own people in the Eastern Province. One of them was the Minister of Housing from 2004 for several years. Because of the hullabaloo created by the media and the wave of sympathy for Nafeeka the family is likely to get a decent house soon – thanks to the personal intervention of the President. But the many others living in wattle-and-daub sheds in this 21st century will begin to wonder if it will require their own children to have their necks cut to get their right of enjoying a well provided for home.

    Villager says “Shirani B is deeply involved in a regime change through a judicial coup. We are happy she is gone with her national and international conspirators for obvious reasons.”

    I too heard from some of my lawyer friends a talk along these lines. What I heard was that the judicial coup was to come in the form of a challenge in the Supreme Court by way of review of a case involving MR. A lobby group that included American funded NGO wallahs masquerading as champions for human rights, rule of law, forum for democracy and policy alternatives were suspected to be hehind this alleged plot.

    [Edited out]

    The real reasons for the removal of Shirani Bandaranaike will eventually come out. It is very clear that government MPs did not dig up the mud only recently. Government sources would have been aware of Shirani’s misdeeds at the time she was appointed as CJ. May be they thought she would continue to give favourable decisions.

    Perhaps her association with people like Pakiyasothy was her undoing.

    In those rare moments when despots raise their hands against the rule and function of the due process of law, it is the organised legal fraternity that must resist such dubious moves. Here we now have Wijedasa R meekly cowing down, as widely predicted, after breathing hell and high water until yesterday. One appreciates the Lawyers Collective offering some semblance of resistance. Sadly, JCW, Jayampathy W and company are 2nd leaguers and their admirable efforts will pan out. MR plans his moves with great precision as he did to
    sideline the more fordmidable Sarath F. The former CJ is nothing compared to the country-wide anti-Rajapakse sentiments SF was able to produce, that stood strong for quite a while.

    History bears many examples when shrewd manipulators subverted strong democratic societies under the guise of pseudo-racial religious patriotism – not excluding the great German Republic itself in the late 1930s. There we saw educated, long-standing, healthy institutions brought to their knees. But these eventually collapse but not before harming millions of people and turning the land topsy turvy.

    Sri Lanka stews in its own juice.
